Over the last few months I’ve come to the realization that I have been a bit of a slacker. Whether it has been sleeping past alarms, or lacking the motivation to keep all the balloons up in the air that I have set up for myself in my schedule.
I have also come to the realization that I have been chasing after simple pieces of paper. Whether it has been working hard chasing dollar signs or hours of study to obtain a diploma, my mind has been focused on trying to bring these things to fruition.
After a while I must say, I felt the need to escape the regular groove or pattern, so to speak. Getting outside the classroom and into the real world of fast-pace thinking, quick deadlines, and a customer-first mentality helped me get a better picture of harmonious relationships and how deals actually work.
I have come to a couple conclusions…
- All people want to receive full attention and help when they are in need.
- All people like to receive the best service and value possible without feeling cheated or mistreated.
The way I look at life is with excitement. I feel like life is a constant build-up, and for many people and companies this may very well be the truth. For a lot of people, making things from the ground up is not only a desire but rather a necessity for growth into the future. Great things take a while before they are manifested, but in order to perfect any art or creative vision it takes time to polish things up.
Visions are gradual and they take a long duration of time before they are completely understood.
Staying on track, remaining focused, and meeting deadlines are crucial, but so is keeping a solid ground and stability within your greatest interests. Finding a way to rise above your personal struggle and bring life and prosperity into other people’s lives is a great thing, if you can manage to accomplish it.
Even though at times it may feel like the world is against you and your backs against the wall, you have to remember to persevere. One step at a time, one-day at a time, and one-week at a time effort has to be made towards your greatest priorities.
Whoever you believe in and look up towards, you can use those people as an example to meet your own deadlines.
As I like to think, keep your feet on the ground and look up. Be optimistic and keep your small steps realistic. Once you make the small steps you can gain respect, and build a reputation. Once you build the small steps you can go anywhere you want from there.
Be mobile and learn how to manage your life to the best of your ability. Remember, nobody knows what your engine that keeps you moving forward is capable of, except for you. Sometimes we put things aside and we take breaks, but by keeping something in locomotion, it will help take your experiences that you bring and your results to the next level.
